Our take on the Audiobahn AW1006T

by Steven Johnson

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

Got enough juice? Get an amp for your new sub Audiobahn's high-performance Flame Q subwoofer will put the slamdown on your sound system! A thick aluminum basket acts as a launching platform for bass frequencies projected by the flame-embossed aluminum cone and 4-layer 2-1/2" voice coil. The 2" thick PHAT foam surround and monstrous 7-1/2 pound dual magnet structure control woofer movement for bass that'll shake you.

The AW1006T 10" subwoofer features dual 4-ohm voice coils for system versatility — it can be wired for 2-ohm (coils wired in parallel), 8-ohm (coils wired in series), or 4-ohm impedance (each coil wired independently). The unique "flame basket" design has the chrome look of a classic car — but the sound is totally modern. This sub works best in a ported enclosure; if necessary, it can also be mounted in a sealed box (see "Enclosure Compatibility" under the Crutchfield Hands-on Research tab).

Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. Most car amplifiers are stable down to 2 ohms in standard mode, or 4 ohms in bridged operation.

Features

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 4-ohm voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2-ohm load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents a 8-ohm load. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel and each channel will see a 4-ohm load.

Cast Basket: The dual voice coil woofer uses a polished chrome aluminum 6mm cast basket. This ensures a perfect alignment on each and every woofer. Unlike stamped baskets, the cast basket cannot bend or tweak. Rigidity is important when trying to achieve strong bass and high SPL.

Flame Basket: Audiobahn's Flame series cosmetics are integrated into the cast aluminum basket, the back cover on the magnet, and the cone.

Aluminum Cone: This woofer uses a stamped and balanced aluminum cone. Aluminum cones are light, fast and accurate for excellent sound quality.

Surround: This woofer has a PHAT 2" multi-layer foam surround.

Magnet: This woofer has 120-ounce double-stacked strontium magnets, giving it superior power handling capability.

Vented Back Plate: The back plate is vented to ensure efficient cooling of the voice coil.

4-layer Voice Coil: This woofer has a 2.5" 4-layer voice coil.

Chrome Finish: This subwoofer has a protective chrome finish.

Speaker Terminals: Each voice coil is equipped with Audiobahn's patented Multi-connect Lug Lock speaker terminals, giving you 4 inputs (2+, 2-) for each voice coil. Each terminal can accept bare wire up to 8 gauge. The wire is held in place by tightening Allen Head bolts using the included 4mm Allen wrench.

Wooden Box: This subwoofer is packaged in one of Audiobahn's trademark wooden boxes.

Enclosure Compatibility

Recommended Ported Box Volume: For best response and sound quality, Audiobahn recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.4 cu/ft with one 3" diameter x 6.75" long port, so that is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield. If box space is lacking in the vehicle, Audiobahn suggests a "Space Saver" box can be used with an internal volume of 0.65 cu/ft with one 2" diameter x 6.5" long port. For high performance applications, Audiobahn's "Ultimate SPL" box design has an internal volume of 2.4 cu/ft with one 4" diameter x 6.25" long port.

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: This woofer is best suited for ported box applications; with all other factors being equal, the woofer will sound better in a ported box than it will in a sealed box. If you must mount this woofer in a sealed box, Audiobahn recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume within the range of 0.5 cu/ft to 1.0 cu/ft.

Power Handling Note

Power Handling: The woofer has two 4-ohm voice coils, and each coil can handle up to 450 watts RMS (900 watts peak).

Audiobahn AW1006T

Written By Nick, Knoxville, TN on Sunday, May 08, 2005
 
I've got 2 of these great subs in my 1995 Z28 Camaro. I put them in a very small box for these subs, .8 cu ft box. I have a 1800 watt audiobahn amp drivin them. Hard hittin, they love rap and punk. The only complaint is my car, I dont have a capacitator in my car right now (caught the last one on fire (20 farad) in a spl comp, pushin 146DB's!!!) so its not as tight as before. Great subs for small places, hits like 15's in a vented box. Trust me, i shater'd my back window twice in spl comp's with these subs. Loud low and strong.

Yet another awesome product from Audiobahn!!!

Written By ferrariwhite, Alvarado, Tx on Monday, March 14, 2005
 
My friend had ONE of these in his Camaro. He had about 550 watts RMS going to it and it BOOMED!!! I have an Audiobahn A8002T amp and decided to hook it up to it. Man, this thing can really pump out the bass. Very clear sound and, even though it was getting too much power(the A8002T amp is realy 4-ohm stable in bridged mode, but on this sub, it was at 2) it handled it and sounded nice and clear!!! Highly recomended!!!
